Process development for future semiconductor nodes

Semiconductor chip manufacturing demands enormous efforts in the development of resists and hard mask materials as well as etch and deposition processes. It is extremely cumbersome and expensive to use the actual manufacturing lithography technologies like EUV and DUV for testing of new materials and etch processes at the nanoscale. Direct write nanolithography with high resolution and fast turnaround can help to lower costs and time for process development significantly.

Mastering for nanoimprint lithography (NIL)

NanoFrazor lithography can offer the unique capability of patterning single-nanometer accurate, high-resolution nanoimprint lithography (NIL) master templates. Complex 3D shapes with very accurately defined depth can be replicated in large numbers in the NIL process and find applications in, for example photonics, optics and nanofluidics.

Manufacturing devices with nanofeatures in small areas

Numerous devices like biosensors, NEMS, quantum circuits or DFB lasers require precise nanostructures only in small areas of each device. It can be very cost effective to use direct write nanolithography instead of EUV or DUV to manufacture such parts of the nanodevices. The NanoFrazor Professional is a good candidate here, in particular if the unique NanoFrazor capabilities are advantageous for the device performance or if costs of ownership of electron beam lithography are discouraging.
